The upper right of the display panel shows the measured and set gas flow for high gas flow applications (either nasal cannula or tracheostomy mask) and minute volume for mechanical ventilation (either non-invasive or invasive applications).
2] to reach the new equilibrium within the period of time allowed for rebreathing as long as the minute volume exceeded 5 l/min, and has been shown to provide efficient gas mixing and be accurate in the measurement of mixed expired gases in ventilated patients (12).
5 Pa) at a breathing frequency of 45/min, resulting in a minute volume of about 200 [cm.
5-7) It ensures that the predetermined target minute ventilation, based on ideal body weight and per cent minute volume settings, is delivered to the patient.
Since both high frequency ventilation and conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) use positive pressure ventilation to control the patient's minute volume, HFV, technically, only differs from CMV based on its definition: respiratory rates above 150 breaths/minute.
Most recently, in 1996 Roeggla et al (4,5) demonstrated falls in respiratory rate and rises in tidal volume and minute volume in the hypobaric environment with the Drager Oxylog (a model now known as the Oxylog Basic) and the AmbuMatic ventilator (Ambu A/S, Ballerup, Germany) in 1995 to 1996.
